your realtime captioner is linda marie macdonald. caption colorado, l.l.c. comments@captioncolorado.com 100-mile-an-hour winds, driving rain, hurricane earl plowing into the atlantic coast, but loses a little bit of steam. good morning. it is friday, september 3. i'm john kessler. >> i'm sydnie kohara.
6:01 am
good morning, everyone. it is 6:00. let's get you out the door and we'll get a quick check of traffic and weather. elizabeth? >> all right, guys. we were just hearing about an accident northbound 101 on doyle drive right before you reach the golden gate bridge. and it's actual will you sounds like a minor accident right in the area where there was a water main break reported in the 5:00 hour so we are not sure if the two are related. northbound doyle drive at cemetery curve. southbound on golden gate bridge traffic light heading into san francisco. quick check of 880 through oakland. everything is fine past the coliseum. lawrence has the forecast. >> things changing since yesterday. we have some low clouds and fog sweeping onshore, elizabeth. and more of that to come as we look into the weekend. now, that fog mainly confined to the coastline and just inside the bay. but it's pretty thick especially at the beaches. be careful headed in this direction. dense fog along skyline boulevard. temperatures in the 50s. not seeing that marine
6:02 am
influence well inland so mid- 60s already in livermore. it will be hot in spots but you have to pick and choose. big changes over the weekend. that's coming up in a bit. thank yo. in a few hours investigators will be at an east bay dump site searching for a person missing in a murder spree. let's go to anne makovec in pittsburg with the latest. >> reporter: police could be spending hours today sifting through garbage here at the keller canyon landfill. this is the final piece of the murder mystery going on for days here a murder spree in the east bay. here's what led police here to the landfill in pittsburg. on tuesday, a cadillac escalade was found outside the entrance of the biorad corporation. that vehicle belonged to one of the murder victims, rita allen, and efren valdemoro the accused murderer was known to drive
6:03 am
that car. security cameras caught a car driving from the area near the cadillac toward the back of the building, that's where the dumpsters are kept. the camera range stopped before the dumpsters so no one knows what happened back there. here's a clue. employees reported a smell from the dumpsters soon after. now, at the same time, police were actively looking for this man frederick sales because his father was found dead. it is believed he was beaten to death by valdemoro. but by the time police heard about the suspicious vehicles and dumpster tips, the dumpsters were taken to the landfill. that's why police are searching here today. here's a background on the missing man's relationship with valdemoro, whom you see here looking quite beat up. sales and his father rented rooms from valdemoro's girlfriend and valdemoro reportedly accused one or both of them of interfering with that romantic relationship. valdemoro said the father and son then beat him up. he filed some police reports
6:04 am
but before police could act, the elder sales was found dead and his son frederick went missing. now, we are expecting police from agencies all over the area to arrive here at the landfill and begin searching at 9:00 a.m. we're told they have an area taped off where they are going to be focusing their search but they could be sifting through garbage for a good part of the day, john and sydnie. >> thank you very much, anne makovec in pittsburg. and anne mentioned those two women who are also what they think victims in this whole murder spree. we are learn abouting about a man who had been living with the two decomposing bodies they say are this woman. charles rittenhouse is a chemical engineer. rittenhouse is currently at the solano county jail facing explosives charges. police found him in his home tuesday where they also found the bodies of two women. one of the victims was his wife. police searched his backyard where they found barrels with mostly japanese writing on them. the only english word being,
6:05 am
"toxic." investigators confirmed they found a boat of depleted your --bottle of depleted your uranium. rittenhouse worked at goodrich in fairfield. the company does not use uranium. he will be arraigned today on charges positive sessing explosives. this morning, two bodies still in the small plane that crashed on the peninsula. that plane taking off from the san carlos airport about noon yesterday. a few minutes later, it crashed into a lagoon at redwood shores. some boaters in the area quickly got to the crash scene but couldn't rescue anyone from the plane. emergency personnel recovered a woman's body from the water, but two people still in the cockpit will not be removed until investigators check the wreckage. >> one of the bodies in the plane is believed to be that of the owner. he is 92-year-old robert borrmann, who owns a steel company in east palo alto.
6:06 am
the pilot was also killed. witnesses say he was a hero for steering the plane away from buildings near the crash site. the city of san carlos may soon have no police department. last night the city council voted to disband the department and contract services out to the san mateo county sheriff's department. the plan still needs approval from the county board of supervisors. most san carlos officers would become sheriff's deputies but some administrative jobs would be cut. the switch is expected to happen at the end of october. it's expected to save san carlos about $2 million a year. after three years of getting free gasoline, alameda's fire chief is now on paid administrative leave. that was chief david kapler. he safes the free gas was part of his pay agreement with the former city manager but no one at city hall has been able to find a record of that. kapler's base salary is nearly $200,000. hurricane earl is not a
6:07 am
direct hit on the east coast. earl was downgraded to a category 2 storm when its center passed east of the north carolina coast. maximum winds 105 miles an hour. but that storm still causing problems in north carolina and virginia with more to come. more will come farther north. no injuries have been reported. there is some flooding this morning on the resort islands of north carolina's outerbanks. thousands were told to leave and most did. >> it's at its worst point. we are not going to put any emergency worker in harm's way. >> we were going to ride it out in the pool and the hot tub out back. but when they make you leave, you know... >> business owners stayed to board up their buildings. now earl is headed north and people in new england getting ready for a wet labor day weekend. checking traffic and weather we are going to start with elizabeth for our friday commute. will people be taking this day
6:08 am
off as well as monday? >> absolutely. we are hoping for friday traffic conditions. friday extra light traffic conditions this morning. gridlock this afternoon as people head out of town for the long holiday weekend. slow towards the golden gate bridge. northbound 101 on doyle drive right there past cemetery curve, there was a solo spinout. chp on scene now. bridge crews are out there, as well. a minor delay according to ron with the kcbs phone force. we can definitely see slowing on the sensors. and there was a water main break in the southbound lanes in that same area at 4:30, 5:00 this morning. so a lot going on right there in that stretch of doyle drive. but it still looks good across the span of the golden gate bridge. so we'll continue to watch that. in the meantime nice look at the bay bridge toll plaza, nice and light here. hey, chopper 5 is with us now. live over san mateo, showing us conditions on 101 approaching 92. headlights moving southbound looks good in all lanes.
6:09 am
that's your traffic, here's lawrence with the forecast. >> elizabeth, big changes since yesterday as we have low clouds and fog moving in along the coastline. thick out toward the immediate beaches. inside the bay low clouds stretching onshore. but still mostly clear inland and some mild temperatures in spots. by the afternoon, it's still going to be hot well inland into the upper 90s in the warmest spots. it is a "spare the air" day. you're looking at 70s and 80s inside the bay. mostly sunny skies this afternoon. out at the coast, you have some patchy fog and temperatures there in the 60s, maybe some low 70s. big changes coming over the weekend. we'll talk about that and your holiday forecast coming up in a bit. back to you. >> thank you. 6:09. testing accuracy of smartmeters. coming up, the results of a new report. plus, a sour note in san jose. the vandals who have been damaging some public pianos. ,,,,,,,,,,

6:13 am
but the report released yesterday at a public utilities commission meeting blasts the utility for poor customer service. the report says pg&e treated people who complained as though they were wrong. not addressed in the report, whether there are any risks by electromagnetic and radiowaves from those meters. >> i believe it's incumbent upon you to discharge your duties under the public utilities code 451 to hold public hearings on the health effects of emfs and rfs. >> we don't pretend to be experts on rf. we pretend to rely on experts that are in the industry like dr. cleveland and others and we would make those available to our customers. >> the debate not over. a senator plans to call for legislative hearings on the smartmeter devices. vandals are marring a musical art project in san jose. ♪ [ music ]
6:14 am
>> the international project called play me, i'm yours, has 20 pianos around downtown and other parts of the city. they were painted and decorated by community groups. and people are then encouraged to sit down and play. but vandals have gotten into the action and painted graffiti on at least four of them. the exhibit will run for another three weeks until the end of the 01sj arts festival. the pianos will then be donated to charity. 6:14. neighbors said not in my backyard. but it still got the green light. >> coming up, the south bay city that's allowing a resident to put up a 55-foot-tall cell phone tower. remember yesterday skies clear all the way to the coastline? take a look at this live shot outside. we have fog moving into the bay, pretty thick. what does it mean for the holiday weekend? we'll talk about that coming up. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

breaking news in salinas where a licopter has crashed good morning. it's friday, september 3. >> and we have a developing story in salinas where a helicopter has crashed on 101. let's go to elizabeth with the details. elizabeth. >> yeah, it's right here, sids any. southbound 101 closed at airport boulevard. just happened a couple of minutes ago. it sounds like southbound traffic completely blocked. chp on scene. a helicopter crashed on the freeway at airport boulevard. we just got off the phone with chp. they tell us that one person was on board the helicopter. fortunately only minor injuries reported. and there are no reports of anyone on the ground any drivers on the freeway itself
6:32 am
being hurt. fuel is all over the road so southbound 101 traffic as i mentioned is closed between airport boulevard and gould road. northbound traffic we are told is getting by okay. but chopper 5 is heading to the scene so we are hoping to bring you some live pictures here coming up. again the location southbound 101 shut down at airport boulevard. helicopter down on the freeway. in the meantime we'll toss it back up to you guys upstairs. >> thank you. later on this morning, several investigators from across the bay area will be at an east bay dump. they are searching for the one person still missing in a murder spree in which four victims are known dead. anne makovec reports. >> reporter: good morning. police from all over the area will be gathering here. they could be sifting through garbage for hours looking for the body of a missing man from hercules. now, let's go back and tell you
6:33 am
what led police, the clues, why this ended up here this morning. on tuesday a cadillac was found outside the entrance of the biorad corporation, the vehicle belonging to one of the murder victims, rita allen. efren valdemoro was known to drive the car. the security camera caught a vehicle going towards the dumpsters like the cadillac. no one knows what happened back there at the dumpsters but biorad employees record an awful smell coming from the dump stores soon after. now, at the same time, police were actively looking for this man, frederick sales, because his father was found dead. it is believed he was beaten to death by valdemoro. but by the time police heard about the vehicles and dumpster tip, the dumpsters had been taken here to the landfill. that's why police are searching
6:34 am
here today. let's take a little about the motive. here's a little background on the missing man's relationship with valdemoro, whom you see here looking quite beat up. well, sales and his father rented rooms from valdemoro's girl friends and valdemoro apparently accused one or both of them of interfering that with relationship. valdemoro said the father and son, who is now missing, then beat him up. he filed police reports but before police could act, the elder sales was found dead and his son frederick went missing. so there was some hope that maybe frederick would be found alive at some point. if authorities find a body at the landfill today, that hope would be dashed. the mystery here would be closer to being solved though. >> anne, thank you very much. anne makovec in pittsburg. that suspect in this murder spry valdemoro also lived in a house where two women's decomposing bodies were found. another man who lived there was charles rittenhouse, a chemical
6:35 am
engineer. he is the husband of one of the victims. he is currently at solano county jail facing explosives charges. police found him in his home tuesday where they also found the bodies of two women. rita allen and carol smart. rita owned the cadillac left by the dumpster. police searched his backyard where they found barrels with mostly japanese writing on them. the only english word being, "toxic." he will be arraigned today on charges of possession of explosives. this morning federal investigators are expected on the scene of a plane crash on the peninsula. that plane taking off from the san carlos airport about noon yesterday. a few minutes later, it crashed into a lagoon at redwood shores. some boaters in the area quickly got to the crash scene but couldn't rescue anyone from the plane. some people swam out to help but they couldn't rescue anyone. emergency personnel recovered a woman's body from the water, but two people still in the cockpit will not be removed until investigators check the wreckage. several people saw that plane go down.
6:36 am
>> one of the bodies in the plane is believed to be that of the owner. he no longer flew it himself. these are live pictures, is that right? of the crash scene? so we're take'ing look at the lagoon. one of the owners we were talking about, he is 92-year-old robert borrmann, who owns a steel company in east palo alto. you can see faintly the outline of that plane under water. the pilot was also killed. witness say the pilot was a hero for intentionally steering the plane away from buildings near the crash site. the cityoff san carlos may soon have no police departments. last night the city council voted to disband the department and contract out services to the san mateo county sheriff's department. the plan still needs approval though from the county board of supervisors. most san carlos officers would become sheriff's deputies, but some administrative jobs could be cut. the switch is expected to happen at the end of october. it's expected to save san carlos about $2 million a year.
6:37 am
alameda's fire chief now on paid administrative leave after getting free gasoline for three years. chief david kapler says that free gas was part of his pay agreement with the former city manager. but no one at city hall has been able to find a record of that. kapler's base salary nearly $200,000. again, he is on paid administrative leave. 6:37. elizabeth has more on the helicopter crash in salinas. good morning. >> good morning. we're following this breaking situation right now in southbound 101 a helicopter crashing on the freeway. we got off the phone with chp. only one person was on board the helicopter and right now they are just saying minor injuries. traffic is backing up in the area. they have shut down both southbound lanes of 101 between airport boulevard and gould.
6:38 am
the helicopter is upside-down in the roadway so chp is diverting traffic onto airport boulevard. emergency vehicles have to access the area in the northbound lanes. so really expect delays in both directions. unfortunately, it's too foggy for chopper 5 to get out there, so chopper 5 a little closer to home. they are live in millbrae where we can take a quick live picture of 101 in this area. it actually looks okay in northbound and southbound 101 all along the peninsula. we'll have more. we are continuing to update that helicopter crash in salinas. a check of your forecast with lawrence. >> elizabeth, a lot of fog around the bay area. i don't know whether that had anything to do with the crash or not. we have dense fog at the coast. and that's going to be -- some of it will change the weather drastically over the next few days some of that sneaking inside the bay. at the coast today we are going to try to sneak in a couple of rays of sunshine but not a whole lot. that will keep numbers in the 60s for the most part there. you head inside the bay lots of 70s and 80s. still going to be hot in some of the valleys into the upper
6:39 am
90s in the warmest spots. for the holiday weekend ahead we'll probably see low clouds and fog onshore for the next few days dropping the temperature in through labor day. and it's not going to stop there. after that looks like a major drop as the tropical depression heads into the bay area. temperatures headed well below average as we look towards tuesday and wednesday, some places struggling to get into the 70s. big changes, looks like a nice weekend, though. back to you >> thank you. parts of north carolina's outerbanks flooded and but power because of hurricane earl. earl downgraded tie category two when its center passed east of the north carolina coast. maximum winds now 105 miles an hour. no reports though of any injuries. but that storm is still causing problems in north carolina and virginia with more to come farther north. no injuries have been reported. there is some flooding this morning on the resort islands of north carolina's out other banks. tens of thousands of people
6:40 am
have been told to leave the islands. we have the new figures out this morning on the nation's unemployment rate. the latest financial news when we come back. >> plus, a blessing for a harvest. we are going to take you to livermore for an annual tradition. ,, ,,,,,,,,,,

6:43 am
southbound 101 at airport boulevard, a helicopter has crashed on to the freeway. and right now, all southbound lanes of 101 are completely shut down by the chp. the helicopter is upside-down in the roadway. chp is out there now diverting traffic off to airport boulevard. we just got off the phone with chp again minor injuries reported in this crash and no one on the ground was hurt. one person aboard the helicopter. this was an agriculture area so it may have been used for agricultural pushes in that area. chp out there now. the helicopter is reported to be leaking some kind of substance on the road. likely fuel. but that's why they have all southbound lanes completely shut down now at airport boulevard. northbound traffic we are told is getting by okay but that's how emergency vehicles have to access the area. so really drivers in the area should really expect delays
6:44 am
both ways. anyway, we are continuing to watch that story. in the meantime we'll switch gears for a bit and talk hi-5. this is our segment we do every friday. these are the folks in foster city with the body studio for fitness. it's actually a personal training studio. it's a family business owned by a local husband and wife team. and they say the studio is for all fitness levels and suits people who don't like the big gym environment. so if you are ready to get in shape look them up at the body studio for fitness in foster city. makes me tired just looking at them. email us at mornings@cbs5.com to be part of future hi-5's. great job. that takes a lot of work to be exercising at what time is it? 6:44. >> or they have a lot of coffee! folks, heading out the door today, you will see cool fog moving ining an lot coastline. a sign of things to come and still got some sunshine inland. yeah, just coming up on what looks like another hot day. many spots not as hot as it

"spare the air" day. temperatures running in the 70s to mid-80s with sunshine inside the bay. out at the coast you will find a mix of sun and fog, cooler temperatures in the 60s and 70s. it's going to be hot in the central valley, though. 99 in sacramento. 106 in fresno. headed up into the high country? those temperatures moving well into the 80s and as high as 98 degrees in yosemite. but things are changing through the weekend as high pressure changes. that's going to allow for an onshore push. marine layer cooling off temperatures inside the bay somewhat. still 80s and a few 90s there. but as you head to the east bay, yeah, no marine influence for the most part. that means temperatures well into the 90s. but just inside the bay toward

lost another 54,000 jobs, it was a lot better than expected. most of the job losses coming from temporary census workers. we knew those jobs would end. there were about 114,000 that did. private employers added 67,000 new jobs. that was better than expected. labor department also gave upward revision to the number of jobs added in june and july. the unemployment rate rose because a half million people resumed their search for work. they weren't counted the prior couple of months keeping the unemployment rate artificially low at 9.5%. also another good sign in that report, there were 17,000 new temporary jobs added after declines. employers start to add temporary workers to feel it out before adding permanent workers. it's nothing to shout about, but another report including the manufacturing report that we got earlier that shows we are still avoiding a double dip. the market right now up on that news. dow is up 117. nasdaq higher by 31.

[ laughter ] >> there are no winners here. >> there are winners. >> nobody's mind gets changed by these debates. let's get honest. >> but is that's not win or lose. win or lose in the mind of a person who isn't debate rostrum and barbara boxer standing on the side looking like she needed help on every answer. you could see, let her answer correctly this time. she had everybody watching by the end really wanted to help her. >> i would have to say i
6:50 am
thought carly fiorina was impressive, came across very ceo type. no shrinking violet. >> because of the way she was dressed. she was dressed identically for an interview by people about to hire her at $21 millions severance pay if she goes offer the payroll. barbara boxer looked like she was from h&m or one of those forever21 outfits now with the collar floating over in the place and the hair was not exactly right... i mean, it was impressive. >> can we move on to substance? >> people aren't interested in substance if they can't get over image and in this case it was a matter of image, image, image. and fiorina when she looked into that camera and didn't comment on 30,000 jobs shipped some other place and she was even less responsive when barbara said, you got fired! she sounded like donald trump.
6:51 am
you're fired! and that's why fiorina in my opinion was the loser. >> okay if barbara boxer is doing so well -- >> i didn't say she was doing so well. i said she won. that's like saying, you know, one step up. i didn't say -- >> can somebody help me out with this? >> i didn't say this was ideal, no, not by a long shot. >> give me some of boxer's weaknesses. >> weaknesses? >> yeah. >> she clearly doesn't drink water particularly if it's from the family farm in modesto. >> her position on fish over farmers is going to cost her. >> she should have gone to the bathroom when they asked that question. she wouldn't have had to be there when she answered. >> she can't answer it because she has been with the enviros on all aspects as to water. that's a tough sell for her. secondly, she is the incumbent. this year, you doesn't want to be the incumbent even if your mother was incumbent you want to run against her. barbara obviously has to defend yesterday. and when she says, i have done 1,000 bills and fiorina says
6:52 am
you've done four an three of those were insignificant, that's a little tough. >> just quickly, how important is a debate like this with the election coming up? >> it's not important to the voters. >> it's not? >> no. it's important to your contributors, your supporters, the pollsters and the pundits. doesn't have anything to did with how people vote. >> you think there will be another one. i doubt it. i checked the ratings. less than any i have ever been a part of. >> you usually debate yourself. >> true.
